Busy, Busy, Wrapping

My last two nights have been spent wrapping...a lot of wrapping...and I am not even close to being done. This year I decided to forgo traditional wrapping paper after falling in love with all of the crafty things you can do with Kraft Paper...I don't want to show too much, cause that would spoil the surprise! But here's what I've done so far...

Gray and I did some potato stamping for the Grandparents. I also stamped everyones name on the paper, which is handy when we are gathering gifts to pack up as you go visiting!

For my niece I used lots of bright colors...one of her presents was a long roll of paper and I jazzed up the ends by wrapping tissue paper onto the ends to resemble a flower, like this.

For the adults I kept it simple. I used streamers for ribbon (see below for the how to) and I topped each present with feathers and an ornament- I love using ornaments as present toppers!

To make the streamer ribbons- Just crinkle and fold the paper as you feed it through the sewing machine

That's it. Pretty easy!

Happy wrapping!
